As I child, I imagined the future to behold great possibilities. There would be hover cars, robot dogs, jetpacks and holographs of the Jonas Brothers to keep in my room. That's pretty reasonable, right?
Some of those dreams have come true (except how do I get a JoBro holograph?) but the reality isn't as glamorous as I imagined. Apparently, other millennials had similar goals but made their dreams a reality. Four MIT students have created a futuristic restaurant where the chefs are all robots.
These robots aren't just using microwaves to heat up TV dinners, they are cooking only the freshest meals with the best ingredients because you are in control of what you want in your meal. With food this fresh and technology this advanced, you'd think it was only for the richest folks, but turns out it's actually quite affordable.
These robochefs are catering to your every tastebud and it truly does feel like we are living in the future.
Is this the future you imagined?
I really had all my bets on hover cars.
All we have is hover boards.
We basically have robots in our pockets, so that's pretty cool.
But have you ever pictured robots cooking your food?
These guys are living in the future.Meet the Spyce Guys. These four MIT alumni created Spyce, the restaurant that blends technology and hospitality. Michael Farid, Kale Rogers, Luke Schlueter, and Brady Knight made their dreams a reality, creating the first-ever robot-operated restaurant.
It all started in a fraternity basement.

There had to be a better way.

We definitely don't want robots taking over the world.site: "Our restaurant does have fewer employees than your typical quick service restaurant. The employees that we do have, we pay well. The aim of this venture was to make tasty nutritious food affordable, and we do that by being as efficient as possible."
The robots don't do all the work.
Picture the garde managers like this.
At first, it seems a little crazy.
